I keep looking at this one. So not what I'd expect to see, thinking of viewing a shot of Florida. Well, to someone not from Florida. I like it.

Re: Simply,,, Florida,,, wide,,, Open,,, Florida,,

Thank you Sabine and Sarah, this is a natural wide open plain, its protected land that is actually a flood plain that's next to the St Johns river, many times during the rainy season this area is under water and I've seen it totally flooded after tropical storms and hurricanes, but no trees have been removed by people thanks again for looking and commenting

Re: Simply,,, Florida,,, wide,,, Open,,, Florida,,

It appeals to me too Jim.
It's getting tougher to find open spaces like this anywhere around where I live anymore.
I have a theory that developers have a deep seated fear of nature, and want to obliterate all signs of it.

I like it too Jim! The location you chose to shoot from gives it a nice bit of symmetry....

Re: Simply,,, Florida,,, wide,,, Open,,, Florida,,

I don't know how I missed this one, Jim! As usual, your black and white conversion is wonderful (nice blacks, and full whites). I like the story you've captured here, too. Most of all, though, by framing it like you did, you imparted a great sense of depth to the shot--not easy to do, particularly given the space in the photo.

Give it time and I'll bet someone will figure out how to overpopulate this vacant area, unless it has been set aside and protected. One thing for sure the land is "flat" and I enjoyed your B&W conversion. Fun to see monotone vision still being practiced.
